    Thanks all. Great suggestions. I tried some bicycle puncture repair glue and patch and seems to have stuck OK. Have clamped it up and will see how durable at weekend.

    I have some Shoe Goo too whether it has gone solid is another matter....

    The dental floss idea sounds good as does the Aquasure stuff. Already have Black Witch and floss so will try this next.

    The Ion Bootie tip is well worth remembering.....I expect you get what you pay for there!

    I knew all your shared wisdom would come up trumps!! :-)

    Hope you got some well earned sleep Naomi!

    Will let you know the results!

    Many thanks all and happy sailing!

    Stormsure is another one, my guess, it's probably same as Aquasure.

    ----Cuts in soles of boots update-----

    The cycle repair patch stuck on with common-or-garden cycle inner tube vulcanising solution has stayed stuck through 3 solid hours of bumpy and jumpy lake sailing today. So it would seem that this is a success as it kept my tootsies from getting cold.

    I had a thought whilst sailing.....wouldn't kevlar impregnated Ion bootie soles wear out your board's deck quicker??

    Thanks all for your input!!

    Happy sailing!

    No, they have a kevlar (or similar) inner-sole that sits underneath the rubber outer sole. So if you stand on an oyster shell or glass it still shreds the outer rubber sole, but doesnt penetrate through to the foot. I lost my Summer shoes like this but Im really pleased they saved me from a bad foot injury.
